It was a pleasant moment I had. A very unforgettable moment in my life. I never imagined working in my own company with family members. But now it feels real.
My Dad, my uncle and I were supposed to work in our previous company regularly. Until so many problems came disappointed us to live our life. My Dad and my Uncle decided to left their job and establish a company. My Aunt gave them some chances to help her business. Not only chances but also supports in many ways. My Dad asked me to join with him so did my uncle. Both of them agreed to hire me as their secretary.
We were working for at least almost 2 months to build this company. We also have another members from my uncle’s childhood friends. So, the five of us struggled very hard to please our self in working and building the company. Finally, we need another one staff for IT, and I asked my uncle to choose my best friend, Arta to be the candidate. Now, we are six! Seven, because my mom helping my job as a cashier.
The Jakarta International Trade Expo in Kemayoran was the first of my experience for selling goods to people from another countries. Our company, CV Pharabuana Regist was selling the goods/products from my aunt’s factory. She has two medium factories and company which is worked in Pharmacy because she’s a pharmacist. Our products based on herbs because we are support for healthy life.
The Guests From Overseas
I met with hundred people from different countries that time. Our stand was supported by SCOPI (Suistainable Coffee Platform of Indonesia) thanks to Ms.Veronica who helped us a lot. And of course because the government of Bogor City asked my aunt’s coffee product (Den Bagus herbs coffee) to join the expo, we had our great time on the event!
In my team, I was being the interpreter even my English was not that perfect. At least, my English helps the situation when the buyers came to our display room. My Dad and Uncle were very cooperated too, they served Indonesian people and attracted many foreigners buyers and visitors to visit our place and meet my explanation. Lot of them were attracted and interested of Indonesian coffee and of course our products. They gave us some contacts to keep in touch in the future.
I was very excited to speak with so many foreigners. It was a pleasant memory of mine. Here are some photos of my memories with them:
Yup! So many photos I’d really wanna share with you but I should say, it takes a lot of time to upload. Well, I was so excited to run this business. I wish this 2016 will be the beginning of my business achievement.
